If you think Utopia doesn’t exist then you’ve never visited Oceania. Each country within this small continent is among the most diverse and fascinating areas on the planet, and the biggest country, Australia, is no exception. With its contrasting landscapes, remarkable wildlife and cosmopolitan cities, Australia is a traveller’s dream. Equally as endowed with natural beauty, but much smaller in scale, New Zealand’s flowing rivers, primeval forests and glacial mountains manage to astonish everyone including the natives who refer to it as “Godzone”. Most travellers planning flights to Oceania combine a trip to Australia and New Zealand.

The rest of the continent – Papua New Guinea, the Cook Islands, Guam and American Samoa – remains something of a mystery to many. The more popular islands, especially with honeymooners booking flights to Oceania, are Fiji and French Polynesia. An archipelago of 300 islands, Fiji has some of the best diving in the world and a blend of fascinating cultures. But of all the islands in the continent, the one that epitomises the South Pacific is Tahiti in French Polynesia. Its tropical waters and sandy coves have attracted visitors for years. One traveller, Post-Impressionist artistPaul Gauguin, was so enamoured with the island that he left his family behind and moved there in search of inspiration.

South Pacific climate

The climate throughout most of the continent is pleasant year-round; winters are mild and almost non-existent in most countries and summers are hot, but not unbearably scorching.

Getting around South Pacific

Although Oceania is a small continent, it’s widespread which means distances are great and flying is the best option in most cases. Australia has two main domestic carriers: Qantas’ subsidiary Jetstar and Virgin Blue. In New Zealand the main regional airlines are Air New Zealand and Origin Pacific.

Buses are another option for long-distance travel in both countries. They’re comfortable, reliable and not as expensive as air travel. But if you’d rather explore the country at your own pace then hiring a car or even a bicycle is also an option.

The easiest way to travel between the islands is by plane and taking domestic Oceania flights is easy. In Fiji, Air Pacific is the national carrier, in the Cook Islands it’s Air Rarotonga and in Papa New Guinea the main airline is Air Niugini. In American Samoa, domestic airline Inter-Island Airways flies between Pago Pago and the Manu’a Islands.

Taxis are readily available in Guam, the Cook Islands, Papa New Guinea and Fiji, however they’re not always metered so it’s best to settle on a fare to your destination before setting out.

What is good to know if travelling to South Pacific?

  • Australia has so much to offer visitors but one place that most tourists won’t read about in their guide books is the Grampians region, a three hour drive from Melbourne. The region is rich in culture and has some of Victoria’s finest art galleries and fascinating Aboriginal rock art.  
  • If you’ve ever wanted to explore the deep blue without actually having to dive then head to Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World in Auckland, New Zealand where you can travel through a transparent acrylic tunnel on a conveyor belt and watch as the fish, sharks and stingrays, swim around you.
  • While visiting the Cook Islands pick up some unique pieces of island jewelry, craftwork and art at the Beachcomber Gallery, a restored 1845 building once used for Sunday school.
  • Visit the Musée Gauguin in Tahiti. The museum is dedicated to the French artist who lived there and produced some stunning paintings depicting Tahitian life.
  • In Fiji, make sure you see a meke – a traditional Fijian feast, and a dance performed to music by bamboo tubes and the lali, a wooden drum.
  • At the top of a 125m limestone cliff in Guam is Two Lovers Point, the site of an ancient Chamorro legend about two lovers, forbidden from being together, leapt to their deaths from the cliff. There’s a gilded statue of the lovers sitting on a pedestal, reminding visitors of their ill-fated love.
  • Swim among the rare species of fish and watch the butterflies flutter by in Papa New Guinea’s Lake Kutubu. The area has one of just five national parks and the most beautiful scenery in the country.
  • The National Park of American Samoa (Ta’u) is definitely worth a visit. Occupying more than 8,000 acres of land, the park features a paleotropical rainforest, flying foxes and other tropical wildlife.

When is the best time to fly to South Pacific?

Australia and New Zealand enjoy their summer from December to February when temperatures are hot but ideal for the beach. Unfortunately this is also peak season when you’ll end up paying top dollar for Oceania flights and accommodations. Winter runs from June to August and is an ideal time to go skiing in both countries. The islands in the South Pacific including French Polynesia, Fiji and the Cook Islands can be visited any time of year but from May to October, their dry period, the weather’s especially mellow. The rainy season is generally from December to March and tropical cyclones aren’t uncommon at this time. Papa New Guinea’s climate is monsoonal: wet from December to March and hot and humid between May and October. Guam, on the other hand, is wet throughout the year and typhoons tend to come round between the months of July and November.

How long is the flight to Oceania take?

Kuala Lumpur International Airport is the main point of origin in Malaysia for cheap flights to Oceania. One of the quickest direct flights to Oceania is Kuala Lumpur to Adelaide, Australia, which takes around 7h 10min. If you are travelling to other destinations around Oceania, you can expect at least one layover. Cheap flights to Oceania from other cities in Malaysia often stopover in Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. The fastest flights from Penang to Auckland, New Zealand, go via Kuala Lumpur or Singapore and take around 13h. Flights to Polynesian islands tend to take longer and involve one or more stops. Fly from Alor Setar to Fiji in around 17h 45min. Compare flights to Oceania to make sure you find the best Oceania flight deals with a departure and arrival time which suits you. There is usually little or no time difference involved when travelling from Malaysia to Oceania, so we recommend taking evening or overnight flights to Oceania to arrive in the morning.

What is the best way to travel around Oceania?

As the continent covers a considerable area across the southern Pacific, flying around Oceania is the quickest way to get around and is often cheaper than travelling by land in larger countries like Australia. You can book domestic flights within Australia and New Zealand as well as international flights to travel between destinations. Save money on Oceania airfare by comparing budget airlines and booking tickets in advance before flying to Oceania. Hiring a car is a comfortable way to get around larger Pacific Islands like Fiji, as public transport can be irregular. Ferries are also a great option to explore the many islands of the South Pacific.

What should I do before my flight to Oceania?

All passengers who wish to book flights to Oceania should make sure their passport is valid for around six months from the date of arrival. Malaysian citizens do not need a visa to travel to most destinations in Oceania, but must purchase an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) online before trips to Australia and New Zealand. ETAs are valid for one year and allow for up to 90 days per visit. In some locations, such as Papua New Guinea, Malaysian passport holders can obtain a visa upon arrival. Before you book flights to Oceania, research where to get the best deal on currency exchange as the airport may charge more expensive rates.

What are some things to do in Oceania?

Destinations across Oceania are renowned for their natural beauty. Hiking enthusiasts can trek through New Zealand’s mountainous national parks like Fiordland and Nelson Lakes. Relax and lay back on the white sand beaches of islands such as Fiji and Samoa or hit the waves and try surfing on Australia’s Gold Coast. Learn about indigenous cultures at sites such as the sacred Uluru rock in Australia’s Northern Territory and Māori meeting grounds in New Zealand.
